So, until the 800 pound gorilla arrives on the 21st, I’m reading Angels & Demons, by Dan Brown. I have to say that it’s a fun read. Every few pages or so, I have to get on the internet and look up little bits of technology to see if they really exist.
For instance, the Large Hadron Collider. The 16 mile circumference of the collider will be used for several experiments, starting 2007. In theory, the LHC could be used to produce antimatter, which is a vital plot point in Brown’s suspense thriller.
The pace is fairly breakneck. Now there’s a six hour countdown, and I’m only on page 125. The book is 600 pages long. I’m interested in seeing how he keeps me turning the pages.
